I’m going to consider these options the next time I need help with a fear, a resentment — any situation that is looming.
God, help me to not be afraid, resentful, angry, etc
There’s a choice before me. I can ask God for help (believing I can pretty much accomplish things on my own) or I can admit I cannot.
Thank you, God, for giving me the grace to be courageous, compassionate or understanding, etc
Furthermore, even if I could do it on my own, whatever I accomplish would be works of self, not works of the Spirit. My self-willed accomplishments won’t flourish, they wilt immediately. His works endure and blossom into wonderful, sometimes incomprehensible gifts.
I’m tired of it – this doing it myself. It’s exhausting… playing God.
